ALISON BAKERY OPENS ... Alison Bakery at 4131 El Camino Real in Palo Alto has been attempting to create a stronger sense of community with its food and services since it opened in July. With the bakery sandwiched between a Subway and a Starbucks, owner Fred Alison recognizes that many similar products are offered nearby, he said. He hopes to rectify this by offering an on-site baker, Ken Wilson, who makes baked goods fresh every morning. The bakery offers muffins, apple fritters, cookies and brownies, and a selection of such dessert pastries as eclairs and slices of cake. Wilson also creates special-order cakes for events such as birthdays and business meetings. Alison Bakery makes sandwiches for lunch as well. The bakery is talking with the Palo Alto Unified School District for an upcoming event, hoping to serve up to 400 students. For more about the bakery, call 650-494-3900.
